. this comes as protests against the united states rage, including in egypt, where it is now four 4:00 a.m. you are looking live at cairo. parts of the city, anti-american rioters are swarming the streets, spewing hate against the united states. we have no idea what tomorrow brings, as the sun begins to rise in a short time. but this day has been extremely violent, with violent protests across the mideast and north africa, durn turning deadly. in egypt, police clashing with stone-throwing rioters outside the embassy. one person was killed. in sudan, the heaviest violence, protesters storming the u.s. embassy and setting the german embasso fire. in tunisia, police firing tear gas and gunshots towards protesters, attacking the u.s. embassy. two people were killed. dozens hurt. and an american school was burned down. in lebanon, a crowd of protesters setting fire to kfc and hardee's restaurants. one protester killed, dozens injured. and while chaos rein reigned overseas, another baths raged. >> in the days ahead and the years ahead, american foreign policy needs moral clarity and firmness of purpo
, and this is why there is outrage toward the united states government. is -- or the united states, because protesters are blaming the u.s. for allowing this video to come out and they are saying the u.s. is accountable and responsible for the fact that they allowed a video like this to go out there and to be spread out there. so that's why these protesters are -- are definitely angry and directing their anger toward the united states. >> mona, being in cairo, why do you think that's happening now? who benefits? >> reporter: that's a great question. we're in a stage where the revolution that began last year for freedoms of all kinds is still very much not completed and a big concern for many in egypt today is that these terrible events will be used by the government to justify a return to emergency law. we still don't have a constitution in egypt, we don't have a parliament. our president and prime minister missing all day. they have made no official statements. you basically have a fringe element that claims to represent us, and it doesn't, on a day and a time when egyptians are still very
was not cleared by washington. it does not reflect the views of the united states government. the romney campaign quickly accused the obama administration of sympathizing to those who have attacked american interests and americans, calling the messages from the administration a quote disgrace. fifteen minutes later, secretary of state clinton issued a statement condemning the attacks in benghazi, but making no mention of the attack in egypt. at midnight eastern, the cairo embassy statements are removed from the official website. in the obama administration reacted to the reports of dead americans in libya. but not without replying to governor romney's criticism of the president as well. the statement said we are shocked that at a time when the united states of america is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in libya, governor romney would choose to launch a political attack. at 5:00 a.m. eastern this morning, reuters informed that the u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stephens and three other americans have been killed in benghazi. six hours later from the president
>> today we mourn for more americans that represent the best of the united states of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act and make no mistake, justice will be done. >> this is on the heels of romney's slamming the president's response which became a fierce back and forth between the two campaigns. and mitt romney appeared in florida, launching a preemptive attack on the obama administration. >> the first response of the united states must be outrage of the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. an apology for american values is never the right course. as i watched over the passed 3 1/2 years, the president has had some successes and failures, and it's a hit or miss approach, but not based upon sound foreign policy. >> here is the statement released just before midnight that kicked off the campaign bickering. romney saying it's disgraceful that obama's administration's first response was not to condemn the attack but to sympathize with those that waged attacks. >> hillary clinton expressing our profound sadness over the
in the house of representatives and the united states not. nice to see you. >>guest: good to be here. >>shepard: this is a complicated relationship with pakistan. >>guest: it's complicated with many countries throughout the middle east and influence the muslim world. it is complicated even in china. we saw our ambassadors car come under a threat of attack because of the controversy between japan and china over some important islands. however, going back to the muslim world, that world is in many ways in transition and in turmoil. as this is unfolding we have to take care. we do have free speech but words have consequences. when we insult a religion under these circumstances it will produce a strong reaction. we saw that when the burning of the koran. our chairman of the joint chiefs spoke out, saying that was putting our soldiers in jeopardy. yes, we have freedom of speech. however, we should take care. the fundamental problem is we have people in these countries who really hate america. they want to take advantage of any turmoil of any kind of controversy to carry out acts of terror. i believe
is the militias in libya with all the guns and weapons were equipped while the united states led from behind to do nothing. something one of the lessons is when there is this kind of thing, we should be in there, helping our friends in this case establish law and order. the public reaction in libya, the killing of the ambassador is frankly very sympathetic to the united states. and i think we should be taking advantage of that. lou: we didn't like the results of the election in egypt, but they also had an election, they also had change direction, again from a direction that the united states is not particularly enamored with. nonetheless, they had changed the character of their government in the direction of the nation. what should we do there as well? >> well, i think that we should be a lot clearer about what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. it was unacceptable for the president of egypt come to the united states into the case of sitting in jail because of the 1993 world world trade center bombing. it is certainly unacceptable for president mohammed morsi of egypt basically equivocate a
. >> the united states will not allow iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. we'll do what it takes to prevent that from happening. all options remain on the table. the president has been very clear and that includes the military option. >> shannon: our ambassador to the united nations says the u.s. will stand with israel and do what it takes to stop oran from developing a nuclear weapon, as israeli prime minister netanyahu says iran is 7 to 8 months away from being able to build a nuclear bomb and demands that the united states give a red line to iran. we start with peter doos gee senator john mechanic cane said an hour and-a-half that he thinks the united states is sing exactly the wrong main to the israelis about whether or not we will have their back, if iran gets closer to building a nuclear weapon. >> we keep tells the israelis not to attack, shouldn't we be telling the iranians that that we are with israel and they should back down. >> reporter: the u.s. bamdass dorto the u.n. says that the united states will do whatever it takes to prevent iran from acquiring the nuclear weapon and the
think we should discuss in the united states. >> let me read you something i know you're probably quite familiar with. for our viewers, something the president has said repeatedly. this he said at the beginning of the year. as president of the united states i don't bluff. i think both the iranian and the israeli governments recognize that when the united states says it is unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. do you disagree with that? that implicit in that is that he will stop them before they have a nuclear weapon, which means they'll draw red lines. i think it's important to communicate it. i wouldn't bet -- i wouldn't bet the security of the world and my own country's future from a country that threatens our annihilation and murders civilians en masse in syria and brutalizes its own people. i wouldn't bet the future on intelligence for simple reasons. american intelligence and israeli intelligence that cooperate together. had wonderful success about saving lives and alerting the people, and also, you know, you just marked 9/11. that wasn't seen. none o
thing either for the region or the flowering of democracy in that region or really for the united states. so i think it's arguable that the president doesn't need to as jonathan put it baby sit these leaders all the time. these sort of meetings that they're having now in a lot of ways are about the optics and i don't think that it was necessary for the president to pander to the jewish american vote meeting with netanyahu, because he's in a good place with that community. i don't think there were many imperatives for the president to sort of put on a show of taking care of this leader or that leader. he's also made it a point of his foreign policy to give america enough distance from some of the gulf states if a revolution takes place there we have the freedom to take the side of the opposition. >> also right, nobody is voting on this issue. this is inside baseball. do you think someone is at home saying he didn't meet with these leaders so i'm not going to vote for him. >> i'm thinking this more in terms of serving america's interests and think there's something to be said not rock the
rising home prices. all these are more important to the united states than what's going on in europe. >> mark, how do you see it? you invested in europe these days or no? >> a little bit, maria. you know, i guess the thing i would say about europe and soon to watch on our shores is you're going to pay more and get less. i look forward to the dislocation between price and value. i think there are a few opportunities in europe selectively. a company we own called securitas, which is a man-guarded service. it trades for about 50 krona. we think it's worth 72. we get about a 6% dividend yield. there's an example where you can find opportunity. >> everybody's looking for yield in an environment where we can't find any. rick, what are you seeing there today? >> you had a great point. everybody's looking for yields, so everybody needs to take more risk. that's the plan. the problem is, when you take more risk to get more reward, you have more risk. you know, take the word austerity and throw it out. use the word reform. one guest just said central bankers are doing all the heavy lifting. be
the united states rejects the efforts to denigrate religious beliefs of others, we must oppose the violence that took the lives of these public servants. again, the president will speak about this attack 10:35 eastern, we will carry it for you. and the u.s. embassy in cairo attacked. an american flag was ripped down and destroyed there and remember, we've given billions in aid to egypt. coming up in a few moments, ambassador john bolton will join us, where is america's mideast policy headed and should we keep paying? just this morning, germany's top court approved that nation's participation in a european bailout, paving the way for money printing in europe. and the markets like it. here is a look at dow futures, oil and gold. all of they will are up this morning, as of right now, they're all up. and they were up a whole lot more before the news of america's ambassador being killed in libya, before that news came out. we're up a lot more. we've got a big day for apple. a new iphone expected to be unveiled and mark zuckerburg, says it's time to double down on facebook, we're watching both bi
brazil, china, india and russia gang up on the united states. he says it's a bad idea for america to be number one, he calls that america and germany, he wants to end it, he wants two, three, four, and five to come together and pull america down. >> lou: and why is such a man tolerated? what is the point? what does he bring to the students of harvard university? what kind of madness, like the fools who thought that the euro would replace the dollar and wonderfully sophisticated trans atlantic geniuses thought the dollar's days are done. haven't we had enough of that nonsense. >> this guy is not only tolerated, but separated and of course, obama took his courses and retained a close relationship and when the 2008 election, he skipped town, i'm a leftist and revolutionary, if anybody connects me with obama, it's going to hurt obama. he's a cocoon that protect the sillness and represent some insight into the future, and-- you're right the problem is when it's taken by a guy in the oval office to endorse pablam, and encores in the united states. >> and tell when what it means when the
in iraq. shia muslims have been working together with sunnis and their protest against the united states. they have joined forces as they chant death to america in the streets of baghdad. as those protests progressed over the last few days, president obama and his administration struggling to even define our relationship with some of those countries, including egypt. president obama, who refused to take questions from the white house press corps did sit down with telemundo and tried to explain his view of the american relationship with egypt. he said i don't think we would consider them in our life that we don't consider them an enemy. a squall of criticism followed. the white house trying to explain what president obama meant to say. spokesman tommy bidder didn't help a white house effort. he said the word ally doesn't amount to much. and call the term ally a legal term of art. for the record, the oxford english dictionary defines the term as a person or organization that cooperates with or helps another in a particular activity. not much art. in that, a simple word. not necessarily a t

obama of the united states was helping to rest that. now we are, 18 months later, they burn the american flag in the streets, anti-american movements all over, killing u.s. ambassadors, attacks united states' embassies. where have we come in 18 months, and at the same time, the president of the united states rather than asserting america's leadership role in the world is off to campaign. lou: off to campaign, and mean while, some is public perception, and that is four more missiles fired by the iranians, seems that they have an unlimited number to show off whenever ahmadinejad makes a major appearance or makes a major point, and at the same time, we have the chinese with a vigorous space program underway, the russians, and the principle space power because they're the only ones who can routinely go into space to reach the international space station in lower earth orbit. it is a bizarre retreat of american power and technology and advancement and to hear that the very people who we have been, you know, so concerned about, ie, iranians, are seemingly carrying out an aggressive space polic

issues for the united states is how do we react to this? because we've got our fifth fleet stationed in bahrain. bahrain has been a friend of the united states for last several many decades and there is this tension between our commitment to human rights, our commitment to our democratic principles on the one hand which are vitally important for us but our real world, concrete interests insuring the flow of oil through the straits of hormuz which you covered. insuring that we have stable relations and influence with governments in the region like saudi arabia who have an in this. melissa: i want to talk about the video we're looking at here. he is trying to make the case, he said this repeatedly and very open about it when were doing the interview and didn't shy away from the question. when you have people in the streets throwing molotov cocktails you are putting in jeopardy the safety of the rest of our citizens. he makes it sounds like you have a few people causing trouble the other side would say these are a few people standing up for democracy that want a voice and this is a mona

is a big thing that iran knows and israel knows and the rest of the world knows that the united states is not going to let iran get a weapon or capability of getting a weapon. >> first of all, i think there's a balance. you need to strike a balance. what many including governor romney and congressman ryan and others around the world have said you have to be specific about this capability point. that you have to be able to signal to the iranians and the world that just building the weapon or getting close to building the weapon, is not the red line. having the tools at their disposal, that they would be easily assembled is a big problem and must be stopped because if they have the tools to assemble a weapon, easily assemble a weapon, it will have the impact that the iranian leadership wants. it will enable them to establish some set of region in the back their terror proxy operations through hezbollah and hamasimpum to just put pressure on friends and adversaries of ours and that's unacceptable and drawing that line does not mean you have to say at this specific moment at this specific
of the terrorist attacks on the united states, the u.s. embassy in cairo released a statement that read, in part, "the embassy condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of muslims. as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. they released that statement because there was an angry mob gathered outside, and that mob continued to gather as the day wore on. nearly five hours later, the state department confirmed the embassy had suffered a breach. protesters outside the embassy were reportedly there due to anger over a reported low-budget anti-muslim film made in the united states and posted on a youtube account. more on that film in a moment. by late afternoon, the embassy was reiterating its statement on twitter, one of the tweets read, "of course we condemn breaches of our compound. we're the ones actually living through this." a short time later, the state department confirmed the u.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi, libya, was under attack. searches for the british monitoring group called it a well-planned assault that occurred in two
